A massive trek away from the bus station but it is centred around plenty food places and small shops. Staff are friendly and breakfast is simple but nice. Nice small common room, everyone is there for the Amazon so great to hear stories and know what to expect. A good place to base the night before setting off into the jungle.


We stayed here after our Machu Picchu trek and loved being able to relax in the hammocks all day. We booked a jungle tour through them which was really fun but maybe go with lowered expectations about the type of wildlife you'll see, as it's mainly insects and tropical birds (no jaguars or anacondas ;)) It cost us 500 soles per person for a 2 day/1 night tour which included a stay in their jungle lodge, which we were able to book on arrival. Only downside was one very unhelpful staff member.


In the daytime the staff is nice and friendly. The guy who works in the night is an idiot. Wifi didnt work in our room. Breakfast is not very good. The rooms are fairly clean, but I did have to kill a tarantula, that was hiding under the bed. The rooms could use A/C. Very hot in the night. We did a threeday-tour to Tampopata with them, and that was really cool. We were there during a city-strike, that shut of all the roads, but the staff got up early to fix us some mototaxis to the airport.


A good spot to stay overnight between arriving on a late bus and going into the jungle. Breakfast was good. Rooms were clean. Shared shower needs a new tap - very hard to turn on and keep on.

Wrong room booked, wrong price at end, expected 20 more soles, only one working ice cold shower, cockroach in shower, breakfast was a bread roll, jam, tea and coffee, and eggs if you had the guts to ask her for them! Not what we expected for Lonely Planet's top rated hostel!
